Fave Albums: Bic Runga - Birds
New Zealand singer-songwriter Bic Runga released her third album Birds in 2005. It's a bit of a darker and more mysterious affair than her previous albums, but contains many moving songs such as "Say After Me," "Listen," "Birds," "If I Had You" and "Captured." There are also the more upbeat songs "Winning Arrow" and "Blue Blue Heart," as well as the country-tinged "No Crying No More" and Nick Cave-esque "Ruby Nights." It's quite a beautiful album even with its sense of melancholy.
Favorite Lyric: A crazy love that waits for you, why must it wait forever? ("If I Had You")
Favorite Song: "Winning Arrow"
